How to redeem Valkyrie’s Apex Legends Twitch Prime skin

Kairi Imahara, code name Valkyrie, is the latest Legend to enter the Apex Games and receive a new Twitch Prime skin.

The description over on EA’s website reads:

One day, Valkyrie was doing some self-reflection and was likeIs my energy chaotic enough? I mean, yeah sure I’ve got a jetpack and rocket launchers, but what if I really upped the ante here with like… a studded belt. YES.

To redeem this skin, you must access the Prime Gaming website and link your active Amazon Prime membership account to your EA account, or you can start a free trial with prime to claim it without an active membership. Here’s the full process:

  1. Log in to the Prime Gaming website
  2. Visit the Apex Legends section
  3. Click “Claim Now” on the Punk Rocket skin
  4. Link your Prime and EA accounts to complete the claim
  5. The skin will then become available in your in-game inventory

After you enter your Amazon account details, you will then be redirected to EA to link your Prime account with your Apex Legends account. Once you have completed this, you will be redirected back to the Prime Gaming website, where you will be informed that the skin has been successfully claimed.

The next time you boot up Apex Legends on the EA account you linked with Prime Gaming, you will receive a notification upon passing the main menu that will inform you of your claim.

When in-game, head over to Legends, select Valkyrie if you have her unlocked, and you will find the ‘Punk Rocket’ among her collection. Make sure to grab this skin as it is only available for a limited time between May 12th – June 21st.

You still have time to redeem the previous Twitch Prime skin for Caustic as well, which will end on May 14th.

Apex Legends 1.81 patch notes: Server stability, Shiela & Rampart fixes, more

In response to all of the server issues in Apex Legends, the developers have released the September 22 update that should will resolve them.

Published

Apex Legends has had severe server issues since the release of the Evolution Collection Event. Thankfully, the developers have shipped a patch to address these problems.

The server issues began for Apex Legends as soon as the Evolution Collection Event dropped in Season 10. The update caused players to crash and disconnect from lobbies, causing frustration for the community.

Despite some improvements with various hotfixes looking to address the issue, the servers were still dodgy.

Luckily, Respawn has shipped a new, more significant update that promises to fix all the issues players have been experiencing, which don’t just concern the servers.

Apex Legends has had a pretty rough time since the Evolution Collection Event dropped, with players crashing and disconnecting from games due to server instability.

Despite the update giving dataminers new code to dig through, allowing the community to glimpse future content such as Wattson’s Heirloom and the Loba Edition skin, players were pretty unhappy with the update.

The update also brought significant changes to Rampart, which the community welcomed and featured some pretty interesting bugs. Luckily, the new patch addresses all these issues and hopefully puts the game’s servers back on track.

Apex Legends September 22 update patch notes

“We’ve just shipped a client-side patch for @playapex, which fixes numerous bugs, including some that can cause crashes and disconnects. See the full list below. We’re also aware that there are still reports of slo-mo servers, and are looking into it!”

Some of the bugs fixed are associated with Rampart’s new changes following the Evolution Collection Event update.

The update saw Rampart’s minigun, Shiela, go mobile. However, this caused some issues with meleeing and exploits that allowed players to instantly reload Shiela without deploying it.

Respawn previously dropped an update to fix teleporting and game lag, but players were still reporting issues.

In the patch, Respawn claims to have fixed most issues with servers, including a problem with animated banner poses that were reportedly causing players to crash.

The players responded to the update stating that they were still experiencing issues, but Respawn quickly replied and pushed another change to fix “slow-mo servers and poor performance.”

As Respawn said, players will need to “give it a try” and see if the issues have been fixed. That’s all on the September 22 update. For more on Apex Legends, check out our article on who the most popular Legend is in Season 10.

Loba in Apex Legends

Apex Legends latest update provided dataminers with an abundance of code to dig through, and some of that code has revealed a new Loba Edition skin set to release in the future.

Apex Legends has had a rough time recently, as following the release of the Evolution Collection Event, players were subject to huge server instability.

Luckily, thanks to a recent patch, players have been having more luck with the servers, allowing them to play without issues.

On the other hand, the update allowed dataminers to dig through code and leak upcoming content, such as Wattson’s Heirloom and the Loba Edition skin.

As well as Prime Gaming skins, Apex Legends also offers players exclusive skins through Legend editions of the game, and dataminers have revealed what Legend-specific edition we will see next.

Thanks to dataminer Shrugtal, players have finally been given a look at the next Apex Legends edition that will be released in the future. The last edition saw Bangalore take center stage, boasting a new Superhero-Esque skin for players to enjoy.

Loba will be the next Legend to receive her own Apex Legends edition, which is excellent news for those who enjoy playing the translocating thief.

Apex Legends Loba Edition skin

While we don’t know when the edition will be released, we do have details on all the items that will be available in the Apex Legends Loba Edition.

Like every other Legend edition of the game, the Loba Edition will come with:

  • Legend skin
  • Weapon skin
  • Charm
  • Badge
  • 1000 Apex Coins.

The skin is called “Arms Dealer” and features a black color scheme with gold and grey accents.

The Apex Legends Loba Edition skin gives the character a militaristic vibe, looking like she is ready for the battlefield with a bandolier around her waist and a blacked-out beret with the Apex Legends logo.

We also have images of the charm, weapon skin, and badge that will come with the Apex Legends Loba Edition, which is all, of course, Loba-themed.

The weapon skin is for the 30-30 Repeater, matching the same color scheme as the skin. The weapon charm is a wolf, which aligns with Loba’s aesthetic, especially as Loba is a female wolf in Spanish.

That’s all for the leaked Loba Edition for Apex Legends. For more, check out our article on when cross-progression is coming to Apex Legends.

Apex Legends Season 10 Ranked updates: Arenas, map rotation, split dates, & rewards

A new season of Apex Legends means a new season of Ranked Leagues, from map rotation to split dates, we’ve got you covered.

Published

apex legends season 10 ranked

Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence is almost here, which also means an update for Ranked Leagues, so let’s get into the details.

Apex Legends Ranked Leagues is an excellent place for those who want to test their skills out and play for points in a competitive environment, which, starting in Season 10, will also be available in Arenas.

No matter how good you are, Apex Legends has a detailed ranking system that will place you on a similar playing field once you play enough games. With Season 10 incoming, let’s check out the updates arriving for the ranked playlist.

Apex Legends season 10 ranked worlds edge

Although there are no significant changes for Ranked Leagues this season, there are still a few things to go over, such as split dates, rewards, and map rotation.

Split dates

As Apex Legends Season 10 begins on August 3, this would then mean that the first ranked split will also start on the same day, with the second split coming halfway through the season.

Due to the recent server issues in Apex Legends, Respawn has decided to extend the first split by one week, meaning the first split now ends on September 28.

With that being said, this means that the second split will also start on September 28, ending when the season finishes. This means that players will lose one week from the second split, so hopefully, there aren’t further server issues.

Map rotation

Every new season two maps get picked for Ranked Leagues, one which spans the first split and another that spans the second.

For Season 10, players will be dropping into Decimated World’s Edge, which has been showcased in the trailers leading up to Season 10’s release.

In the second split, players will be back on Kings Canyon, or at least the Season 8 version of Kings Canyon, with all the most recently made changes to it.

Season 10 rewards

Depending on what level you managed to reach in Ranked Leagues for Season 9, players will receive rewards at the start of Season 10.

The rewards include gun charms, badges, season-long dive trails for those who manage to reach the higher ranks, and new this season, Holo Sprays.

The rewards for Season 9’s Ranked Leagues have been revealed by EA, showing off the badges and dive trails players will receive.

Ranked Arenas

Season 10 will also mark the first season of Ranked Arenas, which Respawn released details about fairly recently.

3 new BR maps will join Phase Runner, Party Crasher, and Overflow, with one of them joining the trio and rotating with each other every two weeks. The new maps include:

  • King’s Canyon – Hillside
  • World’s Edge – Dome
  • Olympus – Oasis

As well as new maps, Ranked Arenas will also feature new maps and an exclusive ranking system.

Although not much has been shared about how ranking will work in Arenas, we suspect the names and ranks will be the same. However, how you receive points and the number of points you need to rank up will differ from Battle Royale mode.

That’s all for the ranked playlist in Apex Legends Season 10. For more updates, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL, and if you’ve been a victim of the recent unfair banning, check out our article for an explanation.
